On This Day: Hammers ram five past Derby

Taking a look back at a classic West Ham United moment on this day in history, in association with Heineken...

Derby County had no answer to the Hammers' goalscoring power on this day in 1999, conceding five of the six goals scored in front of a 25,485 Boleyn Ground crowd.

Ian Wright notched his first goal following a three-month injury absence, and his eighth in total since arriving in east London from Arsenal the previous summer.

He entered the fray as an early substitute and notched West Ham's third goal, following first half strikes from Paolo Di Canio and Eyal Berkovic.

Harry Redknapp's side did not let up after Wright's contribution, scoring twice more through Neil Ruddock on 64 minutes and Trevor Sinclair four minutes later.

Derby notched a late consolation from Paulo Wanchope, who would go on to become a Hammers player a couple of months later, but they were well beaten.

West Ham's emphatic victory maintained their sixth position in the Premier League, and a brace of wins from their final four fixtures earned them a fifth-place finish.
